La Troupe Makandal evokes the power of traditional Afro-Haitian music and dance to represent Haiti’s history and culture in theaters and educational establishments. Much of the company’s repertory derives from the sacred music and dance of Vodou, widely misunderstood in the United States as “voodoo.” The Troupe’s workshops, classes, and performances challenge ingrained stereotypes, but they keep the magic of Haiti alive while educating, entertaining, and healing racial and cultural divisions. La Troupe Makandal creates dynamic music and dance experiences one does not soon forget.

    Hello! I am interested in learning if the troupe can visit my school to perform for and teach our third grade class for a period. They will be learning about Haitian culture in January. Please contact me so we can discuss!
